Anubis: The only thing I ever feared was what I saw in your heart. I tested you. And you failed.
Selket: I failed? You were the one who turned tail and ran.
Anubis: Your power-mad family arranged our marriage. But I didn't cared about that. I loved you. I left the Tournament to see what you wanted more: an emperor, or a husband.
To Selket near the end of the Ascension Rites.

The main character of Unreal Championship 2, Anubis is a prince of the illustrios Reydi family, whose ancestors include 14 former Nakhti Emperors. Favored to win the tournament ten years ago, Anubis left on the eve of the competition. Some say he was a coward; others speculate that political scheming forced him from the tournament. He has served in the Desert Legion for over a decade, honing his combat skills and revealing none of his secrets.

In the game, he signs up for the Ascension Rites (now sponsored by the Liandri Corporation) with his friend Sobek, in order to stop Selket from becoming the Empress and thus condemning the Nakhti citizens to slavery in the hands of the Liandri Corporation.

Tropes related to him:
  • A Day in the Limelight: Aside of the Ascension Rites, he has his own ladder, unlocked after beating the Rites. It follows him in the aftermath of the Rites' events.
  • An Offer You Can't Refuse: Subverted. In the finals' aftermath, a Liandri officer convinces him to both resurrect Selket via the highly expendable Necrification process and to fight in the main Tournament.
    Liandri officer: It needn't end this way. She needn't end this way. Not even the Nakhti emperor can afford the Necris process.
    Anubis: But you could... is that what you mean?
    Liandri officer: Exactly. You keep winning, we keep paying.
  • Anti-Hero: Averted. Unlike the series' standard, he follows the rules all the time and his ways aren't so much out of what the Rites are composed of, even when facing Selket.
  • Arranged Marriage: Was about to get one with Selket before the events of the game, but refused.
  • Badass Boast:
    "For the legion!"
    "I fight for the Empire!"
  • Bald of Awesome
  • Bash Brothers: With Sobek.
  • Collision Damage: His "Energy Burst" adrenaline combo summons an energy eruption which damages nearby enemies.
  • Defector from Decadence: His reason to leave both his Arranged Marriage with Selket and the Ascension Rites in the past.
    "Your power-mad family arranged our marriage. But I didn't cared about that. I loved you. I left the Tournament to see what you wanted more: an emperor, or a husband."
  • Deflector Shields: Activated using his "Repulse" adrenaline combo.
  • Final Boss: Of Selket's Ladder. Also, he's one in the three-way matches of Brock's and Gorge's Ladders.
  • Mr. Fanservice
  • Heal Thyself: His "Heal" adrenaline combo.
  • The Hero
  • My Greatest Failure:
    "I've failed you once before, forefathers. Forgive me. But do not forgive their sacrilege. I will make you proud."
  • Nice Job Breaking It, Hero!: Nice job killing your beloved for the sake of the Rites.
    "I was here to stop her, not to win. And now I've lost everything."
  • The Rival: Apophis.
  • Screw the Money, I Have Rules!: A variant. Before the quarterfinals, he's offered to join Thunder Crash, thus avoiding all the posterior drama, something he rejects because of his own mission. He ends subverting this in the end.
  • Secret Character: Beat the Ascension Rites to unlock both him and his Ladder.
  • Status Buff: His "Warrior Spirit" adrenaline combo, combined with X-Ray Vision.

"The crown isn't meant for cowards, and neither am I."

Tropes related to him:


Voiced by: Jim Foronda

Selket's new boyfriend, he's the scion of a powerful royal family. He's idolized throughout the land for his sports talents, not to mention his jawdropping beauty. His good looks are so heavily insured that the underwriting company requires him to wear a full-face helmet in the tournament.

  • An Ice Person
  • Battle Couple: With Selket, though we never fight with or against both of them at the same time.

    Apophis: (to the Guards) GET HIM! RIP HIM APART!
  • Deflector Shields: Activated using his "Repulse" adrenaline combo.
  • Dogged Nice Guy: Towards Selket, who sees him as only an annoyance.

    Szalor and Torgr
To Malcolm in the pre-match intro to "Lambs To The Slaughter".

Voiced by: Ric Spiegel (Szalor)

Years ago, the Torgr tribe, led by the brutal Torgr himself, murdered Szalor's clan, and those who were left were made slaves. Szalor tried to die fighting his captors and thus regain a small measure of honor, but he only impressed the Torgr with his ferocity. The Torgr, for this reason, entered Szalor into the tournament, hoping to watch an entertaining death. If he manages to win, however, he will be set free. Szalor's ladder takes him through the road for his survival.

Torgr, on the other hand, sees total galactic Skaarj dominance so clear, that for him is practically a fact, just waiting for the historic moments to come. He hopes that a grand Tournament victory (whih no Skaarj ever has achieved) will prove him worthy of being Consort to the Queen, and unifying the Skaarj and their slave races in his ultimate designs of intergalactic conquest. His ladder storymode takes him though the path to make his dreams of universal dominance a reality.

Tropes related to them:
  • A Day in the Limelight: Each of them have an own ladder.
  • Alien Blood: They bleed green.
  • Badass Boast:
    Malcolm: Some would say it's unwise to meet a Skaarj warrior in a game they invented.
    Szalor: It is always unwise to fight a Skaarj warrior.
  • The Chosen One: Szalor, in Raiden's ladder, is chosen by the Elder God to fight against the Outworld forces.
  • Cliffhanger: Since both ladders end at the Szalor vs. Torgr battle, there're two possible outcomes, which end with the rival being dead. Which one is the "true ending" is up to the player.
  • Collision Damage: Szalor's "Blade Burst" adrenaline combo damages nearby enemies.
  • Earn Your Happy Ending: Szalor. In his own ladder, which takes place during the Ascension Rites, he's set free, and in Raiden's ladder, he becomes The Chosen One and Earthrealm's champion. And if that isn't enough, Anubis and Brock's own ladders, which take place after the Ascension Rites, reveal that he's still around, as part of Thunder Crash.
  • Energy Absorption: Their "Blade Shield" adrenaline combo summons a shield made of blades which reduces explosive damage.
  • Final Boss: Of each other's Ladder. Szalor is also one in Raiden's Ladder.
  • Healing Factor: Their "Regeneration" adrenaline combo.
  • Power Nullifier: Torgr's "Primal Scream" adrenaline combo prevents nearby enemies from using adrenaline combos.
  • Proud Warrior Race Guys
    "Fight with honor!"
  • Retool: From Lightning Bruiser into Mighty Glacier, for game balance reasons.
  • The Rival: Between each other.
  • Secret Character: Torgr. To unlock him, beat Szalor's ladder.
  • Unstoppable Rage and X-Ray Vision: Their "Predator" adrenaline combo combines the above trope with this.
  • Wolverine Claws: (with occasional Energy Balls) The player can use the Razik and Claws with both of them. If the beams hits another Skaarj, it's a Wasted shot.
  • Yank the Dog's Chain: Beating Szalor's ladder unlocks Torgr's, and the latter's final rung mirror Szalor, which means that Torgr wins the final match, which either means a) he's still a slave, or b) he's dead for good.

"I seek warriors, not cowards."
One of his taunts

Voiced by: Chase Ashbaker

The God of Thunder was cursed to see how the Outworld forces were invading the Earthrealm. Disgusted at this, he relinquishes his status as Elder God and beginds a quest to seek strong combatants in order to form an unified front against this invasion.

His ladder storymode has him testing all the Unreal champions and warriors in hopes to find suitable ones for his cause.
